Sustainability of electricity supply technologies under German conditions
This study was commissioned by the Internationale Länderkommission Kerntechnik (ILK, International Committee on Nuclear Technology). The Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) carried out a limited scope comparative study on the sustainability of different electricity supply technologies under German conditions in order to demonstrate the applicability of a systematic approach and generate reasonably consistent results from which robust conclusions can be derived.
